Peering Inside ProteinsNews
The proteins in our bodies are sophisticated structures that perform specific jobs to keep us functioning and healthy. Understanding how a protein is wired could help researchers develop ways to control its activity. A new technique lets researchers look into the atomic structures of proteins to see that wiring.READ MORE
This ATM Dispenses AntioxidantsNews
Antioxidants are molecules that counteract the damage to our bodies from harmful products of normal cells called reactive oxygen species (ROS). Now, research has found that a protein called ATM can sense the presence of ROS and responds by sounding the alarm to trigger the production of antioxidants.READ MORE
